Alan Grayson Internal Poll

I usually stay away when candidates release internal polls. However, this Alan Grayson internal poll needs to be commented on.

Alan Grayson 40%
Daniel Webster 27%
Others 23%
Undecided 11%[1]

This poll tallies out to 101 percent. That makes no sense. Internal polls should be taken with a grain of salt.

Webster is in trouble if independent voters are really swinging towards Grayson.

Other revelations from the poll include the facts that Grayson has a dramatic lead of 41% to 9% among Independent voters, a striking margin of 60% to 13% among voters under 35, and an enormous advantage of 84% to 5% among African-Americans. “Webster is toast,” said Drzymala.

Grayson seves as an example of a progressive winning a traditionally conservative district. Blue Dogs and New Democrats are good at losing elections. That doesn't mean I expect progressives to win big overnight in Texas or Alaska. Voters don't like politicians that constantly flip flop. Can anyone tell me what Ben Nelson or Blanche Lincoln truly care about. (Besides getting elected.) Grayson's victory will refute the Rahm Emanuel argument that progressive candidates can't win and get re-elected to Republican districts in the South.

Just because someone is conservative, does NOT mean that they are retarded! Republicans can tell when a republican nominated candidate is not fit to serve,as is the case here.

Perhaps the GOP will take back its party from these wingdings after their heads are handed to them in November.

Grayson lost 56-38. He didn't even get the 40% he was at in this fake poll.

Never let a politician like Grayson fool you again with a fake internal poll. It was taken the day of the GOP primary. Notice that 23% of people are listed as voting for "others." Well, yeah, it was the day of the primary. Maybe some hurt feelings there that cleared up by election day, obviously.
